    [RC] Research priorities - Linda B. Merims

    I went to an equine reproductive seminar at Cornell about
    a decade ago.  Harold Hines was the host vet.  I asked
    some kind of a question about research funding and
    he said that the only reason that we know as much as we
    do, comparatively, about mare reproduction is that equine
    mares are considered a very good model for *human*
    female reproductive issues.  Thus, equine reproduction
    studies are often funded out of health care industry/government
